Who can do this with default capabilities?

District Level Administrators, District Staff, School Level Administrators, School Staff, Teachers

This report identifies students who have and have not completed tests during a specific time period. The report includes each student's name, grade, class, teacher, the type of test taken (if you are using Star Reading Enterprise), the number of tests completed, the number of tests not completed (interrupted/unfinished tests), the estimated IRL (if one is set), whether extended time limits were used, and the date of the last test. It also indicates which students have not tested, which students are enrolled in more than one Star Reading class, and if historical data is included on the report.

Tests that have been paused ("in progress") will not appear on this report until they are either resumed and completed by the student or stopped.

    The Test Activity Report shows data from a specific time period. You can use either a marking period that has been set up by a district level administrator/school level administrator for your school, or you can set your own range by choosing a starting and ending date.

    Use this option to further refine which students are included on the report: all students, only students who are registered to take a test, or only students who have not taken a test yet.

    Choose how to group the information on the report: by class, grade, teacher, or not grouped.

    Note: This report uses both the Group By and Sort By options; if a Group By option is chosen, it is applied first on the report.

    Choose how to sort information on the report: by students' last names or by their most recent test date.

    Note: This report uses both the Group By and Sort By options; if a Group By option is chosen, it is applied first on the report.
